Love in the '40s When Mail Came Twice a Day by Vivian Kline
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Wasn't sure what to expect from this book. In this day and age of instant contact via email, text and what not, how could I ever relate to something so...old and foreign? How could people have a relationship via written letters? Dating and engagement and love all through the power of the pen? Impossible! Or so I thought.
These two young people got to know each other in a way that our generation has sadly lost. Deeply, intimately on the inner level. Nothing superficial here. It was so endearing and makes me long for a time like this, with no bells and whistles. No technology can take the place of truly connecting with another human being like this.
But this is so much more than just a love story, it's a historic recall of days gone by. It's amazing how much we as a nation have changed in such a short time. I truly enjoyed reading this. It has left me melancholy and thoughtful.
